Course Information for Students

This is an introductory course so that students can decide whether they would like to pursue their interest further in psychology and to complete a GCSE in the subject.

It covers an introduction to the scientific study of the mind and how it dictates and influences our behaviour – from communication and memory to thoughts and emotions.

You need an interest in psychology and should be motivated to undertake further study outside the classroom.

The course investigates what it means to be thinking, feeling and alive.  It will ask challenging questions, with answers which can be gleaned by looking at available data and current literature.  Students will be guided by the tutor to search for answers and differing theories regarding thinking and feeling.

This course will be delivered on-site.

N/A

The course will be assessed through a portfolio of student work.
